Museum Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Love the Museum Cafe and eat there several times a year. Invited three friends and we ordered Caesar salad and grilled salmon which we had ordered on many occasions. All of us were so disappointed in the dressing and overcooked salmon😝 Our waiter was not friendly and certainly not attentive.
Plan on going back and hope food and service improves!
We were at Museum Cafe for a pre-theater dinner. The ahi tuna appetizer was excellent and the crisps that come with it are handmade and particularly good. We both had the tomato basil soup, my husband's as an appetizer and I had a bowl as a main dish. This soup is always one of our favorites. It is not a cream base, is made from fresh tomatoes and is very, very flavorful. My side salad was excellent - not just lettuce and tomatoes. My husband had the halibut and it was delicious. The only snafu was that he specifically ordered it with whipped potatoes and it came out on top of risotto as it's described on the menu. Our waiter seemed new, so probably just inexperience and it wasn't a big deal as they fixed it immediately. Our wine (Rombauer Chardonnay) was excellent. Their wine list is quite good with lots of variation in wines and price ranges.
This was my 2nd pre-theatre visit with the Museum Café and the was excellent. The menu is diverse and the service attentive. We were going to see Lyric Theatre's musical production at the Civic Center and the wait staff understood the importance of getting us out in time to make the curtain. I enjoyed the crab cake appetizer and house salad which was a meal unto itself. Great atmosphere and wine selection too. Highly recommend!
Disappointing in all aspects. With only 5 tables filled on a Saturday night, we expected outstanding service.....Not even close. Waited for drink order, waited for food order for 35 minutes. We were trying to make an 8:00 pm movie which most servers would have known or asked about. We got "Sorry, the pork tenderloin takes a lot longer to make." Unfortunately, the cook didn't realize what all that time would do to the tilapia. When the food finally arrived the I could barely cut the "crunchy" but supposedly "pan-seared tilapia. Also, menu needs an update....the 2 green beans, 1 asparagus stalk, and 1 carrot, do not count as "vegetables", especially when the carrot was raw...Yeah the one thing didn't get cooked for 35 minutes. For the price, much better places to go.......Final insult was when server couldn't figure out how to charge a visa gift card......again another "sorry". That summed up my experience at the Museum Cafe-"Sorry".
The lobster bisque was absolutely delicious, however, I found the seafood mac and cheese was a bit bland. The service was excellent as was the coffee. It was a little odd, though, to have to walk through the restaurant to find the hostress and then be seated. A better entry from the museum could be developed, maybe.
We went here for Sunday brunch before a movie in the Museum theater. My wife and I ordered were joined by another couple that are friends of ours. Our server started us off with some mini muffins. We each got a blueberry muffin and an orange muffin. I liked the orange muffin better than the blueberry muffin. The orange flavor was strong but not overpowering, and you can make blueberry muffins that taste this good by yourself at home.
I ordered the 3-egg omelet with spinach, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes. The omelet was prepared just right - lightly browned on the outside, moist on the inside, with all of the vegetables displaying their distinct tastes. I like this combination of vegetables because you get some earthiness from the spinach, some bursts of flavor and mild sweetness from the sun dried tomatoes, and some mellow earthiness from the mushrooms.
The omelet came with their brunch potatoes; a toasted, buttered English muffin; two small, thin slices of honeydew melon; and some red grapes. The brunch potatoes are a mash-up of mashed potatoes and homefries. It seems that they make mashed potatoes, go heavy on the herbs, and then put them in a hot skillet for a while to build a nice crust on the outside. I liked the contrast of the burnt crust and the creamy mashed potatoes. I took the English muffin home because I didn't have enough room for it. The honeydew was almost flavorless, but most honeydew melon is that way. The red grapes, however, were full of flavor.
Perfect for our before-theater dining, just a block from the venue. Easy, abundant parking. Wanted a steak but our server recommended the elk. Glad she did. Scrumptious! Asked for a custom cocktail we love to make at home. The barkeep happily accommodated us and nailed the blend like he makes them every day. It became difficult to carry on a conversation as the room filled but if you aren't handicapped by geriatric hearing, it's really not as noisy as most restaurants these days. We had an absolutely marvelous evening.
